Badger Tracks: Summer 2015

WAA hosted a tour for 450 to see the Badgers play in the Final Four in Indianapolis, along with two pep rallies that each drew more than 7,000 alumni and fans. “The association staff did a terrific job in putting the tour package together,” says Pete Christianson ’71. “WAA is the only way to go, I have learned. Never a problem, never a worry, and nonstop fun with great people!”

The Class of 1965 will hold its fiftieth Class Reunion October 1–3, 2015. Highlights will include campus tours, a Day of Learning, and the Half Century Club reception and dinner, along with the class tailgate and Badger football game against Iowa.

WAA member receptions are becoming as much of a tradition as the spring events they celebrate. WAA members gathered at the Fluno Center for a reception before the UW Varsity Band’s concert in April. Another special social for association members during the following weekend treated some 130 Badgers to breakfast and camaraderie at the Quarles & Brady law offices preceding the Crazylegs Classic run.

Since 2004, the Wisconsin Alumni Association has honored alumni who have provided outstanding service to their local communities with Badger of the Year awards. This year, 19 of them were recognized at their local Founders’ Days.
